	load printers = yes
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
	null passwords = yes
	domain master = yes
	hosts allow = 192.168.
	passdb backend = tdbsam
	dns proxy = no
	netbios name = Kiska
	cups options = raw
	writable = yes
	server string = Samba %v on (%L)
	printing = cups
	local master = yes
	workgroup = NUS
	os level = 33
	valid users = Admin,Tech
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	max log size = 50
	interfaces =  eth0 lo 

    path = /tmp
    hosts allow =,,,
    hosts deny = 

   comment = [Insert Title Here]

   writeable = yes

   comment = All Printers
   path = /usr/spool/samba
